The SBP Ocean Cargo Index for May 28th 2013 is 5 (five), up from 4 yesterday. This is the number of cargo ships I could see from the Seal Beach Pier that were in the LA/Long Beach port or waiting to go in.
Today is Tuesday, and it seems our “June Gloom” is starting a little early. During June, along the coast of southern California, June days are usually cloudy and overcast in the morning. The sun often burns through the clouds in the afternoon, but not always. When July arrives the morning gloom disappears.
SBP stands for Seal Beach Pier, which is in Seal Beach California. The SBP Ocean Cargo Index is a count of all the cargo ships I can see during my morning walk. The more ships I see, the better the U.S. Economy is doing (at least that’s my story). My walks don’t happen every day and I don’t always have time to write an article, so the SBP Ocean Cargo Index will only appear from time to time.
